To this day, Eugène Bozza (1905-1991) remains one of the most prolific composers for wind instruments, despite being a violinist himself. His 14 Mechanical Studies for Clarinet will enable the pupil to attain brilliant technique on the instrument.
During his studies at the Paris Conservatoire, Bozza won prizes for Violin, conducting and composition, as well as the Grand Prix de Rome. He then conducted the orchestra of the Opéra-Comique and became Head of the Conservatoire in Valenciennes, while remaining a prominent composer. The exercises in Bozza's 14 Mechanical Studies ensure detailed practice of range, intervals, embouchure, breath control, rhythm, phrasing, articulation, performance directions, dynamics and chromaticism, among other aspects. 14 Mechanical Studies for Clarinet is an essential aid in the progression of advanced Clarinet technical studies.
